what chapter are we gonna talk about today, gang? what's it? what is it? begins with e. energy. how many people feel energy? how many people wish they had more? we'll be talking about such thing now. but before we talk about energy, i wanna talk about something that is somewhat related. we talked before about the idea of momentum. remember momentum? momentum is inertia in motion. and how do you get something moving if it's not moving? how do you change the momentum of something? you push on it, and you provide what's called an impulse. impulse, right? impulse is not only force. it's not how hard you push only that will tell you how much momentum change you'll get. it's how long you push. and we talked about how long in terms of time, didn't we? we said force multiplied by time would be numerically equal to. you multiply the force that you exert on something, huh? multiply it by the time that you exert on something, you get a numerical quantity. and that quantity is exactly equal to, not the momentum, but the change in momentum that you produce by pushing, huh? and so we talked about
hetchy regional water system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organization. we're out there rebuilding the water system. we've budget working on power generation in the country. we've been doing sewer for the city. we're looking at a brand-new rebuild of all watt systems in san francisco and we haven't had a home that's been other than mental. >> they staff over 900 people. the puc is in two office locations. >> you know, this is such a great place for a building. if the puc owned that building and we could make that the icon i can sustainable building puc represents, wouldn't be a dramatic idea? >> so, one of the major decisions we made was we wanted to make a statement with this building. we wanted this building to be a lead
of the governor's wind energy bill. this is the third general assembly that is considering the proposal. we have the latest. >> supporters hold something that bash hope something that looks like this will be in operation by 2017. and passages considered a done deal thanks to some political maneuvering. >> an advocate considers it a heaven sent former vergie. >> it will create jobs and create clean, sustainable energy and move our reliance away from oil and other energy sources that are not so great. >> the cast of characters urged legislators to pass the bill. the third time may be the charm. mike miller told supporters the bill is almost guaranteed to land on the governor's desk. making sure the legislation moves to the senate floor where the bill has 24 co-sponsors. >> will get through science committee and the sad enter the house. >> i feel like i am in trouble. griffey was 20 minutes late for a hearing on his own bill. the governor made his pitch. his bill establishes a regulatory framework creating an incentive for companies to invest in the wind farm off the coast of ocean city. >> this le
reform. up on capitol hill. first, confusion over the obama energy policy. for over 75 years people have saved money with...ohhh... ...with geico... ohhh...sorry! director's voice: here we go. from the top. and action for over 75 years people have saved money with gecko so.... director's voice: cut it! ...what...what did i say? gecko? i said gecko? aw... for over 75 year...(laughs. but still trying to keep it contained) director's voice: keep it together. i' for over 75...(uncontrollable laughter). what are you doing there? stop making me laugh. vo: geico. saving people money for over seventy-five years. gecko: don't look at me. don't look at me. at tyco integrated security, we consider ourselves business optihow?rs. by building custom security solutions that integrate video, access control, fire and intrusion protection. all backed up with world-class monitoring centers, thousands of qualified technicians, and a personal passion to help protect your business. when your business is optimized like that, there's no stopping you. we are tyco integrated security. and we are sharper. >> bret:

( applause ) >> woodruff: so at nine minutes after 9:00 eastern time, president obama makes his way in. the official plan had been for him to come in a minute or two after. but i guess he has a prerogative of being a few minutes later than what we were told. >> he just can't stop himself. he just l
be somebody to run the u.s. government. in this particular case it is energy secretary steven chew. i was there at the briefing that he gave today and he really went after the president. he said that he lacks the courage hearing lacks the guts to take the liberal side of the party and made his basic point that president obama would pursue and he does in his speech tonight, taxes on the rich, but unwilling to get tough on entitlements which, of course, is an anathema to the left wing of the party. >> while he has refused to agree to some to raise for example retirement for medicare but has agreed to reduce social security benefits by enacting a different method for cost of living increases. white house claims that he has put \$1.4 trillion cuts on the table. republicans don't agree all of those are cuts. it counts is savings from ending the wars if iraq and afghanistan, but the president will contend tonight that the country is much further along toward dealing with its spending program, dealing with its deficit problem than republicans will accept. we'll hear a different version of tha
, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. that's why democrats, republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in this congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms -- otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the

. and that member this evening is the departing energy secretary steven chu. so if the worst happens prepare for president steven chu. wolf blitzer, already saying that he welcomes president chu. >> steven chu, the energy secretary, the designated hitter god forbid in case of emergency. this will be one of theirs last official acts including, of course, the defense secretary leon panetta. momentarily we'll hear paul irving, the house sergeant at arms announce that the president of the united states is coming in with those very famous words, mr. speaker, the president of the united states. then the president will walk in. you see members of the cabinet walking in including dennis mcdonough, the new white house chief of staff, at the top of the screen. he's designated as a member of the cabinet, the white house chief of staff. john mccain, lindsey graham, they're always together. not surprisingly. they're good friends, allies on so many of these issues. this is a moment where so many members of the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, some actually try to sit together to demonstrat
and is expected to discuss investment in infrastructure and clean energy, all ostensibly without increasing the nation's deficit. beginning the republican response tonight as well from marco rubio. john, a lot of discussion tonight about the tone. the dow is at a fresh five-year high but a couple of wild cards in the form of north korea, foreign policy, a standoff in california tonight, the gun debate. >> the gun debate is one that's thrust itself into the nation's attention span, and the president's agenda, and this is going to only encourage that, but really the tone everybody is looking for is his tone vis-a-vis republicans. the inaugural, he had his elbows out a little bit. he was very newly confident just coming off that re-election. people will be watching to see how aggressive and confrontational he will be with them on the deficit, on the investment proposals he's going to make tonight which are modest but, nonetheless, are there. and on immigration, which is one way republicans are coming his way. >> larry kudlow, tonight you talked about the line between being assertive and confid
, energy, and manufacturing, which will help the middle class. i think progressives are hoping he will put forward policies in line with his inaugural vision -- progressive, aggressive, and inspirational. that is what they are hoping to hear tonight. how host: about the selection of marco roby roma -- hamas host: -- host: how about the selection of marco rubio? guest: he has only been in the senate a couple of years. republicans are also looking past mitt romney's defeat. they are looking forward to someone who will deliver an address in both english and spanish. the republicans are losing hispanics, young voters, and women. rubio only has tea party appeal, but mass appeal. that is why his speech is so important, what he represents about the party's future. host: the tea party is also being represented in a separate response by senator rand paul. what does that suggest about the tea party influence in washington, and who speaks for them? guest: a great question. unlike a lot of things in the republican party right now, a lot of disarray, a lot of confusion. rimpau and marco rubio are not n
that a light green program means you're not getting your whole energy or all of your energy from recs or any kind of renewable energy. the light green program in marin is 50% regular energy from wherever they're getting it from and 50% renewable energy credit. so, that is what a light green program is. all the different options we're looking at are all 100%. pg&e needs are going to be 100%. our parav -- program is going to be 100% * whether it's [speaker not understood]. i can look at our solar panel over there and say my money went to that. it doesn't matter to -- the general public doesn't know the difference between bucket 3 recs which are the ones that are unbundled and bucket 1 recs which are ones you can say my money went to that solar panel right therethv they just know they're purchasing 100% renewable energy from the city. the only thing that brings our program apart from pg&e's program is this discussion of local benefits to san francisco. where are the jobs? and right now the plan as we're looking at it doesn't have that language in there. it doesn't have that message so people
through a list of other issues from energy to manufacturing, touched on foreign policy and at the end reached, i think it's fair to say, an emotional crescendo when he talked about gun violence in america and recognized a number of individuals there in the house chamber who have been touched by gun violence. either they're the survivors, surviving family members or who themselves have been victims of gun violence. mark, we were counting, i think, as he went through... i know i made some notes. almost a dozen new initiatives the president announced on everything from international trade to higher education to doing something about the voting experience in america. it seemed like the president was trying to inject some energy into his second term. >> i agree wu, judy. i just want to underline the emotional apex of the evening was undoubtedly the "deserve a vote" chant that the president led when he spoke on gun control and the need, making the argument that our police departments were outgunned by those with assault weapons with criminal intent. and i thought that a speech that quite fr
will get a vigorous private sector if the government backs off and let's the dynamic energy of the private sector go forward. neil: he will be talking about not only bigger government but smarter government. government can do a lot of good. do you think government can? >> look, we don't need smarter government. we don't need more efficient government. we needless government. people in middle class and people in the lower classes they don't need more government, they need jobs. we need to create jobs. we need the economy to grow so that we can fund these government programs. look, government could be run better. everything could be run better but we don't need more government. we need more jobs. we need need more investment. with we need more prosperity. we're not on the path to that. i hope tonight he will take a different course. i'm not expecting it but i'm hopeful. >> thank you. neil: president's cabinet coming in. new addition, john kerry, replacement for hillary clinton as secretary of state. leon panetta the outgoing defense secretary. that hagel confirmation approved in committee is

"it could mean the difference between food bank and getting ahead." the president announced a bi- partisan commission to improve voting delays and made this vow about the war in afghanistan. "over the next year, 34,000 will come home and by the end of next year, our war with afghanistan will be over." the president ended with a plea to reform gun laws "gabby giffords deserves a vote. aurora, oak creek, (etc) deserve a simple vote." florida senator marco rubio provided a republican response. "obamacare is the reason companies 50 and larger aren't hiring. it's turning fulltime workers into part-time workers" observers say president obama has a limited window of opportunity to get it done.
